22 DEAD, 75 INJURED AT U.K. ARIANA SHOW (UPDATE)

An explosion an Ariana Grande show in Manchester, U.K., has resulted in 22 fatalities and 75 injuries,and a 22-year-old man has been identified as the bomber, according to reports. Grande herself was unharmed, according to a rep at Republic, but at least one large explosion at Manchester Arena (after Grande's show was over) led to crowds rushing to the exits and police speeding to the scene.

The Islamic State took credit for the bombing, stating on the social messaging app Telegram, “One of the soldiers of the Caliphate was able to place an explosive device within a gathering of the Crusaders in the city of Manchester.” 

Police have identified Salman Abedi, 22, a British man whose parents emigrated from Libya, as the suicide bomber, according to The New York Times. He lived within four miles of the arena.

According to a BBC report, eight men and a woman have been arrested in south Manchester in connection with the concert bomb attack. Prime Minister Theresa May said investigators were trying to establish whether Abedi was acting alone.

The socials are filled with messages of sorrow and devastation, to which we of course add our own.
